The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is organising a half–day training course on ‘Introduction to Corrugated Cartons’ in South Australia.
The course will be held on Wednesday the 15th of February 2012 at Plant Research Centre, Urrbrae and will be presented by Ron Mines, a leading consultant to the box and packaging industry.
The half-day training course will present the humble corrugated box as probably the most diverse single-form packaging medium in use throughout the world, today and in the future.
The course will cover the basics of papermaking for the box industry, progress through the conversion of paper and other materials, into the finished package.
The corrugated box industry is highly complex with numerous board grades and flutes as well as box styles in addition to extensive customer requirements and confusing terminology.
On completion of this half-day training course, participants should be able to:
- Understand board grades and how they are established
- Understand the differences in flute types and their applications
- Be able to determine suitable styles, dependent on process capability
- Gain basic, but substantial understanding of the technical aspects of box making
The half-day training course on Corrugated Cartons is ideal for people from all aspects of packaging, including students, technologists, graphical and structural designers, QA/QC, purchasing, marketing and logistics.
